Jon Hamm turned out to be a perfect choice of host for the ESPYs.
Jon Hamm, the American actor best known for playing Don Draper on Mad Men, has potentially put himself in the frame to host the Golden Globes or the Oscars after delivering a hilarious hosting performance of the ESPYs this week.
Those who've seen 30 Rock or Bridesmaids will know Hamm has comic timing, though we didn't know he was this funny.
Hamm was initially regarded as a strange choice of host for the awards, which honor achievements in sport, though he worked the crowd with aplomb, calling the ESPY's "the world's largest gathering of people wearing sunglasses indoors."

The swimmer gives us an insight into his life
Tomorrow (Sunday 20th) will see Ryan Lochte’s reality show take its bow. But what is it all about? Well, the Olympian will be taking his audience on a journey through dating, family, and, other stuff. Sound like the most boring thing ever done by anyone? Well it’s not. And we’re surprised you said that.
"On this show there will be these times when I'm doing the interview part and then I'll just go completely blank. I lose my train of thought; I'm in my own world. And we call those Ryan Moments,” explains the singer. "I want that on the show. I want all that stuff on the show because it's me. That's Ryan Lochte." Of course, anyone who watches these kind of shows is mainly interested on one thing: on-screen relations! "I'm a single guy,” fesses Ryan, “so, you'll see me going out on a couple dates on the show. You know, just trying to find that one true love." Rumours are that he’ll be going on a date with childhood crush. Carmen Electra. "I mean, that was like my little boy dream. I had pictures of her on my wall when she was on Baywatch," he said to MTV.

Could Ryan Lochte be the next Kim Kardashian?
Ryan Lochte’s newest endeavor is the reality show What Would Ryan Do? and the swimmer took on the challenge, because one of his influences is… Kim Kardashian. Yes, you read that right. The Olympian cited the reality queen as one of his inspirations for how he wants to conduct himself and where he wants his career to go: "I have the most respect for her with her business and what she's done. She started from nothing and now look at her. You can ask anyone and they're going to know who she is. She's handled herself really well throughout the years of doing her own show. She's a star," he praised Kardashian and added: "I started watching to try to learn what to expect. The whole Kardashian family, they have a bunch of energy. Wow, this was awesome. That's how my family is. We all have a bunch of energy and we are all different."
You could argue that Kim’s L.A. beginnings were far from humble and then there were those incidents, you know, sex tape, rushed marriage, etc. But who are we to say who Lochte should be idolizing? In any case, What Would Ryan Do? is now finished taping and the swimmer is going back to his roots, training six or seven hours a day for the upcoming world championships in Barcelona.
"I'm back in my normal routine, getting my butt whipped all the time," he said about the preparation. Smart move, in case the whole media empire thing doesn’t work out.
